6469. PATRONAGE, Distribution of.—

I am sensible of the necessity as well as justice
of dispersing employments over the whole
of the United States. But this is difficult as
to the smaller offices, which require to be
filled immediately as they become vacant and
are not worth coming for from the distant
States. Hence they will unavoidably get into
the sole occupation of the vicinities of the
seat of government,—a reason the more for
removing that seat to the true centre.—
To Colonel Henry Lee. Ford ed., v, 163.
(N.Y., 1790)
